The Angar rocket family includes carriers: light class Angara-1.2, medium A3 and heavy A5 with versions A5M (upgraded), A5B (increased payload) and A5P (manned) . The draft of the latter should be developed by the end of this year. Earlier it was reported that Angara-A5P will put into orbit the new-generation domestic spacecraft Orel (Federation).
